Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

THREE RING DISPLAYS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE





Wouldn't this be a great Bare-Back Riding Act number, George Hanneford Jr., Justino Loyal, & Tommy Hanneford

I would just love to see a family a family bare-back riding act in the circus again.
Talking about when 3 ring displays don't do justice to an act; my poor husband Danny Carey was in 2 very unusual displays. On a Hanneford date he did his rola-bola with Bones Craigs elephant and Vitals sword balancing. On Jordan's he did his hand balancing with a wheel and a russian swing!

The sad thing is that large riding acts that we have enjoyed in the past are probably a thing of the past because of the cost of supporting the act. Possibly such an act would be a family from Europe or South America. I hope another group would come on the scene.
